View Full Version : Not shutting down properly
August 17th, 2002, 08:39 AM
i have a problem with my computer. Its not shutting down properly. It shuts down enough for the computer to boot the right way and without the scan disk screen at the start but the computer doesnt switch off. I think that it might be a hardware problem. Maybe the switch off mechanism is broken or damaged in some way? Has anyone got any ideas?
My specs are:
P3 550 mhz processor
